In close range, an elbow is one of the most effective weapons that we can throw. If done properly, it can do a ton of damage and help your cause in getting out of any situation.
I like to call elbows your best friends in a fight. You can use them at any angle that you can move your arm, and they are very powerful. Be sure to involve your lower body. As usual, and effective strike starts from the ground, driving from your feet, legs, hips.
In this video, we are focusing on elbow from the side. Rotation is key to making this strike strong. Many students try to lean instead of rotating, which reduces your power significantly.
Ok, that’s all for now. Enjoy the video, be safe… and GO DO SOME KRAV MAGA TODAY!
